A12-9800 vs FX-4350 comparison
In our benchmarks, the A12-9800 beats the FX-4350 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the FX-4350 in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the FX-4350 has a slightly higher clock speed than the A12-9800. A A12-9800 CPU outputs less heat than a FX-4350 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the FX-4350 has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the A12-9800
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the A12-9800 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
